A new karting track at Ħal Far is fast taking shape, with surfacing works now underway.

Infrastructure Minister Ian Borg said in a Facebook post on Wednesday that Infrastructure Malta is giving a helping hand to the Island Karting Club, which is spearheading the project.

The track will be 937 metres long, although the initial phase currently in hand will be 630m long. The facility will be inaugurated later this year.

Borg said karting enthusiasts will finally realise their dream of having international-level facilities.

The project, he said, had been in the planning stage for a decade.

Karting activities to date have been focused on a privately-owned track in Ta'Qali.

The minister's post drew an avalanche of comments calling for a motorsport track, as promised before the election, about which no progress has been made so far.
